Sandy Springs OTP

Welcome to Sandy Springs (Outside The Perimeter)

Featuring great schools and a plethora of green space.
 
Most of Sandy Springs is located outside of the I-285 perimeter and offers both city and suburban-style living. Homes are varied and range from simple ranch-style houses to more elaborate multi-million-dollar estates. Popular neighborhoods include Aberdeen Forest, The Branches, The Enclave at Jett Ferry, Mt. Vernon Walk, and Londonberry. Condos and townhomes are also scattered throughout.
 
Offering a suburban existence, Sandy Springs OTP is just a short drive away from ITP towns but still maintains its own distinct charm and character. There’s lots of green space here, and properties are quite expansive. 
 
Parks like the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area are plentiful, and shopping centers like The Prado or CityWalk offer a wide range of places to shop, eat, or grab a cup of coffee. Sandy Springs is home to one of the nation’s best facilities when it comes to tennis, and many residents enjoy getting involved in community events like the Sandy Springs Festival.
